We're excited to participate in
a blog tour
featuring Nancy Zieman's newest book -
Quick Column Quilts.
Make 12+ Bold and Beautiful Designs in
Half the Time
Who doesn't want to do that?
I chose to make the
Carefree Column Quilt.
You take 6 fat quarters and
1 1/2 yards of fabric
and start cutting!
With this design it can be modern,
whimsical or traditional.
highlights the fabric.
Another thing I like about this pattern
is that it would be easy to
add columns to customize the size.
The columns go together quickly.
Sometimes I like to be told
exactly where things go,
Nancy's diagrams did just that.
After I cut my pieces,
I noticed some were directional,
so I made my column quilt go horizontal
so the whales and fish
are swimming right side up.
This fun Beach fabric
is a 6 fat quarter pack.
It's on sale,
It was perfect.
I paired it with Kona's Windsor Blue.
This quilt measures 45"x60".
A nice lap size, wall size or
mine is great for a toddler.
The quilting was done by Baywater Quilts.
Ingrid has been machine quilting for many years,
and does such a great job.
We went with a
splashing water vibe.
Just added some yummy flannel
on the back.
